“That’s the main reason why I didn’t want to be in WWE anymore, it’s because I knew those opportunities weren’t coming. No matter how hard I scratched and clawed, no matter what I proved, they weren’t coming. I wasn’t one of the chosen ones. Now here I am, I’m proving it myself. But now, it’s like I know I’m great at professional wrestling. I know I deserve these spots, but now I have to show up and prove that to other people. So now there’s a certain pressure on me because there is no one to blame anymore.”
“So now here I am in these spots, I’m in the main event last night, I’m in the main event next Saturday, and the pressure is there because now I have to prove it, but I know deep down I can prove it. I know deep down that I belong there, and it’s a wonderful, very freeing feeling to be in that spot.”
